Come and explore the latest research on effective leadership and leadership development. Because of the obvious gender gap in school leadership—while women make up the majority of educators, the majority of higher-level leaders are male—we will focus on gender as a starting place for exploring:
· Whether school systems really tap into the potential talent pool of aspiring leaders by considering multiple faces of leadership.
· How unconscious biases affect leadership choices—for yourself and others
· The neuroscience and “neurononsense” surrounding gender differences in the brain and how the resulting stereotypes hurt people of all genders—students and educators!
· How to move beyond traditional views of leadership that often limit the talent pool and lead to linear views of ed reform
The Women in Educational Leadership Luncheon has been an annual tradition in DuPage County for over 25 years where we gather to celebrate, inspire, network, support, and educate women in education leadership for one day each year.
We are proud to announce our keynote speaker for this year’s event is Jane Kise, who will speak about her book Step In, Step Up.
The annual Hormel Foundation Gifted and Talented Education Symposium provides an opportunity for educators, counselors, administrators and parents to gain greater understanding of the unique needs of gifted and high potential learners. Participants attend in-depth sessions focusing on foundational knowledge, creativity, curriculum strategies, and social/emotional needs of gifted and high potential learners provided by the field’s finest regionally, nationally and internationally recognized presenters.
This special event empowers aspiring and current female leaders to take the next step on their leadership journey. It’s also an ideal learning experience for those dedicated to championing change and supporting the career paths of women in education.
Over the course of three days, participants will hear high-impact talks and contribute to candid conversations around some of the most pressing topics for leaders today—from rejection and resistance to collaboration and work-life balance.
Attendees will also participate in learning labs carefully designed to unlock the leadership potential of female educators. During these sessions, experts share how to build trust, develop high-performing teams, lead results-oriented change, and make the greatest impact on student achievement.
